Nyasa Bullets FC veteran winger Fischer Kondowe has been allowed to quit the club after he asked for the termination of his contract over outstanding signing on fees amounting to K3 million.
According to Kondowe famously called ‘Jahman’ said he is tired of ill-treatment at the club.
Kondowe revealed that the team is yet to pay him his signing on fee amounting to K3 Million.
“It is not that I play Bullets because of money no! But what I want is that the club honours and respect what is in the contract. Supposed I play for money, I couldn’t have rejoined Bullets after my return from Black Leopards in South Africa” said Kondowe.
He added: “I found the team in deep financial crisis and decided to rejoin because I love Bullets and I will die for Bullets”.
He also advised other clubs to respect their players.
“Most of the players dont respect players…we are always ill-treated that is why you see players quitting football because they are always
frustrated. What I want is for Bullets and other clubs to follow what is signed in the contract between players and clubs” he said.
Nyasa Big Bullets executive committee has accepted Kondowe’s decision to have his contract terminated with the longest serving player being told to join any club of his choice.
In a letter dated 1st August 2017 and signed by Bullets’ interim General Secretary Albert Chigoga, the club says Kondowe was on the verge of being named the team’s brand ambassador due to his dedication.
“Following your letter dated 29th August 2017, we sincerely regret to accept your personal decision to terminate the contract with Nyasa Big Bullets FC. As a football club, we were working on a long term programme to make you a Brand Ambassador through marketing initiative with our sponsors Nyasa Manufacturing Company due to your dedicated services to our football club,” Bullets said in response to the player.
“We will always regard you very highly as one of the iconic legends of Nyasa Big Bullets. We wish you the success as you seek to re-launch your career elsewhere,” reads the letter.
Meanwhile, the player has pledged his commitment to the club.
“I am still with the team but I have just raised my concern. It is better to know the truth rather than counting on things that will not
bear fruits” he said.
Kondowe started his career with Bullets Youth in the late 1990s before being promoted to the senior team in 1999.
He became a regular for Bullets and the national team before moving to South Africa’s Premier Soccer League side Umtata Bush Bucks in 2005.
In 2006, Bush Bucks were liquidated. He them moved to Black Leopards same year. After two seasons with Leopards, he clinched a lucrative deal with Bloemfontein Celtic, but a season later returned to Leopards.
He was released by Leopards in 2011 and returned home to rejoin Bullets.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
